New video posted today is a must see for fans of classic Michigan football, and affords viewers an interesting snapshot in time of what Big Ten football was like in the early 1970s.

This was Bo Schembechler's 3rd team, and his first outright Big Ten title (8-0, 11-1) as Michigan coach. Bo would not win another outright title until 1980, but would sharing the Big 10 crown multiple times in between with Ohio State or Michigan State..

Some interesting footage as well of Michigan players like WR Bo Rather that I had not seen before.

There's some interesting sideline reactions and banter from BigTen coaches as well, like the old NFL films. Indiana's John Pont complaining about player mistakes, etc.

Michigan grad Bill Fleming adds the voice and Purdue's band adds the music.

I can't embed, so here's the link below.
